INTRO:
Dm G7 C Am
Dm G7 C Am
Dm G7 C Am
Dm G7 C Am

VERSE:
Dm G7
On a bright spring day near the approach of May
C Am
My spirit leaped with the season and drew me away
Dm G7
From the comforts and pleasures and agonies
C Am
That were familiar to me
Dm G7
A brief repose or a final close
C Am
To the years spent in emptiness, who knows?
Dm G7
It was not the time for clarity
C Am
It was a season of resurrection
Dm G7
Restless I wandered like a once caged bird
C Am
Who found the sky and finally heard
Dm G7
His song without the echoes of a cage
C Am
And found it quite absurd
Dm G7
So seeking the solace of a greater sea
C Am
I walked the coast to know my condition
Dm G7
But it was not the time for clarity
C
It was a season of resurrection

Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C Am
for history to pass me by.
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C Am
for memory just to let me be
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C Am
Waiting ever patiently
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C
For you.

INTERLUDE:

VERSE:

DmG7
What a thing, what a thing, spring in full ing
C Am
Despite the agony of the hour I was compelled to sing
Dm G7
A hymn to human victory
C Am
But I could not cease to cling
Dm G7
To the idle aims and futile games
C Am
Of a dying city whose rising ames
Dm G7
Promised to light a brighter way
C Am
Than the fury of a summer’s day
Dm G7
But every lamp was a lie, the city cold and dry
C Am
Crowds of climbing towers rose to shut out the sky
Dm G7
And every wall raised to keep back the sea
C Am
Kept all from being free
Dm G7
So I fled the streets to meet the tide
C Am
And I walk the coast to know my condition
Dm G7
But it was not the time for clarity
C
It was a season of resurrection

Dm G7 C Am

CHORUS:

Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C Am
for this story to pass me by.
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C Am
for memory just to let me be
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C Am
Waiting there patiently
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C
For you.

Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C Am
for this story to pass me by.
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C Am
for memory just to let me be
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C Am
Waiting there patiently
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C
For you,
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C
For you.
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C
For you.
Dm G7
Waiting there by the sea
C
For you.
